is the california debt allocation committee bond financing available with the state particularly coupled with 4% tax credit to build their inclusionary unit, as long as they built more units and at a deeper level of afford ability. the reason we allowed that funding is because it's less competitive than other funding. we felt there was plenty of it out there and also we're getting more units at deeper affordability. we went ahead in 2010 and exempted these projects from inclusionary housing program thinking that their monitoring procedures were too much in conflict and learned after that there is no reason to exempt them, we can handle it. and their procedures can be synchronized. but more importantly, we don't want to lose the long-term affordability of these units. this is 4% tax credit unit are not restricted for a longer period as the inclusionary units. the inclusionary units are now restricted for the life of the project. so until the building crumbles and the others are not. we want to bring it back: the next is the conversion of rental to ownership units. we clarified the process and update
